It's been over a year but the 6-foot-6 safety is back with the Florida State football program after…
Kenny Ingram set to rejoin team this summer
The two chatted about life, school and how Ingram, the former Orlando Edgewater High School standout, will fit into the Seminoles' defensive scheme in 2007. With two years of remaining eligibilty, Ingram has been cleared to return to the program that he began his collegiate career with.
"It's been a hard road but I am finally coming back," Ingram told Renegade Report Wednesday. "I got a lot out of this. I just had to get my mind right. I am a better person because this happened to me. I am excited to be coming back."
What happened occured at regular-season's end of the 2005 season - Ingram's redshirt freshman campaign - when he was deemed academically ineligible to play in the 'Noles' bowl game.
At that time, it was thought that it would only take a spring semester for the 6-foot-6 defender to improve his grades and he enrolled at Tallahassee Community College. But a semester turned into two and then into a year.
Ingram enrolled at East Central Community College in Mississippi to play football and that is where he finally got the necessary grades to return to the Seminole defensive lineup.
"To be honest with you, I grew up a lot since I was playing here last," Ingram said. "I am just ready to get out there and play and show everyone how much I want to be a Seminole. I am a harder worker and I have a better appreciation for what it means to be here."
